This is Meshi, here to serve up another heaping helping of figure previews. It's been thirty-six years since the original Gundam aired and in the time since it's become a genre unto itself with as many spin offs as there are stars in the galaxy. Today's figure was featured as a child in THE ORIGIN but today we're looking at her as she first appeared all those years ago. Let's dig in!
In the 21st century we're still far from producing mobile suits but as this Sayla shows our figure technology would give Zeon a run for its money!
Frankly speaking mobile suits had more curves than most of the original female cast. Thankfully MegaHouse saw to it that Sayla's body line was updated to reflect modern tastes.
Or maybe it's just that Earth's gravity brings out the best of her slim spacenoid figure. Forgive me if I'm overthinking this.
The fit's so snug that from back here these look more like white tights and a mini-skirt than a military uniform. Thanks to the space age fabric we're even able to see the outline of her butt through multiple layers.
You don't have to be a New Type to figure out what Amuro sees in her--just the ability to stare unabashedly and a high vantage point. The retro-future stylings of her M71A1 handgun and outfit look great from up here, too.
Like all the best sculpts her expression changes with the angle. From head on she's sweet and sultry, from the side determined and from down low wistfully reflective. How you choose to display her says as much about you as it does the figure!
That sad expression fits this alternative right arm part all too well. Goodbye, comrades! Goodbye, Lieutenant! Goodbye, contents of my wallet!
Don't miss your chance to be the onii-san than Sayla never had!
